Savilian‘s been someone we’ve championed through Project U since our – and his – very beginnings in the early part of this decade when we did a community radio show on the Central Coast.
Since then – he’s gone from doing it as a hobby – and made it his mission to achieve great things with every aspect of music. At a recent gig supporting Tkay Maidza, I saw a commanding and energy-packed performer with depth, passion & other adjectives that you can use to explain he was basically fucking amazing. And serious.
Today we’ve got a new video from Savilian – real name Matt – for his song Higher Place. The song stars backing vox from his girlfriend Inna Angeline, and production from the young don, Kuren.
“Through my relationship with Kuren and some investment in self, my music has been going to a higher place of late, and I thought it was time to take my video content there also. This is pretty much the most mature visual that I’ve come up with, and it’s happened like this for a few reasons. Ultimately I just took a little longer to plan, and got some really good/positive creatives around me to help see the idea and take it to the next level. I cannot be thankful enough to everyone who invested their time and energy into this video, from Kuren’s production on the track, to the engineering genius of Aaaron Lee Worldwide, to the backing vox of my beautiful gf Inna Angeline, the amazing concept development and editing by Ruffy from RareFlow TV, and the drone skills of Richard and Josh from Helivision Solutions – massive effort all round.”
Savilian’s booked himself a six part national tour beginning in Melbourne, stopping at Sydney’s favourite Friday nightspot Banquet & supporting Tigerilla in his hometown of the Central Coast – where he’ll also play this Saturday as a just announced act alongside Remi & Cloud Control for House Of Voodoo.
Whether you like this song or not (and let the record show we love it) – Savilian will be around for a while. So too bad.
